That’s right! Settled on a cover, have opened pre-orders! Are you chomping at the bit to see what kind of trouble our band of misfits can get into on Earth? Well the wait is almost over! December 23rd, just in time for folks to unwrap shiny new ereaders. You can pre-order here. If you know you want to read it please go grab your pre-order. I’m hoping to beat Space Rogues 4’s pre-orders. It’s an ego thing, sue me.

I’m not 100% sure this is the final version, but it’s the idea I’m going for. What do you think? I wanted to show the Ghost landed (You’ll have to get your copy when it comes out to find out where she’s landed), and wanted to see what it would look like to have her in a forest clearing.
I really need to get better at sharing these. WIP Thursdays are some of my favorite posts. Space Rogues 5: Danger, Space, The Usual (Working Title) is with Beta Readers now, then off to the editor. In the meantime, a brief scene with Zephyr and Maxim oversharing. The two Palorians say nothing for a minute, staring at the smug military man. The moment Pierce adjusts his seat, Zephyr answers, “Where to start?” She smiles. “We’ve been with Wil for a few cycles now, he rescued us from prison, after we’d been framed by our superiors, who were hoping to start a minor brushfire war to force several non-aligned sectors to join the GC.” Maxim chimes in, “Don’t forget the heist, that was a ton of fun. Highlight of that whole…
